Friday 15th January


Curie Class:

This week I have chosen three Stars of the Week: Hannah, Bow and Zara for the Christian value of Wisdom and Trust. These three girls have been impressing me over and over again with their commitment, hard work and perseverance. Their daily messages are also very kind and polite. Thank you girls, keep on working hard! ;-)


Hudgell Class

Wow! What fabulous work you are all producing, I am super impressed and well done to you all!  It has been difficult to choose my pupils of the week, but I have now picked three for this week's award: Olivia has really stood out for the Christian value of Endurance, since we locked down in January she has really embraced her home learning and is making great progress; Elliott for his ingenious digestive system poster and Sanjana - we haven't met yet but I am very impressed with her attitude to her home learning and I look forward to meeting her just as soon as we return to school. Keep up the great work everyone. wink


Divide 2-digits by 1-digit

We will continue to look at how using pictorial representations can help us understand how exchanges are made when we divide and we will also use more part whole models today - remember to USE WHAT YOU DO KNOW to help you with what you don't know: for example, if you are dividing 42 by 3, split 42 into 30 and 12 because both 30 and 12 are products of the 3 times tables, so 30 divided by 3 equals 10 and 12 divided by 3 equals 4 and I add 10 and 4 together so 42 divided by 3 equals 14 (this will be explained more on the video using the part whole model). You might hear some unfamiliar words: the 'dividend' is the 2 digit number being divided; the divisor is the 1 digit number that the whole is being divided by and the 'quotient' is the answer (number of equal parts).

Structure of a Typical Tooth

Mechanical digestion of food commences in the mouth. But who helps in the proper physical breakdown of the food we consume?

PE Create a sequence of movements to represent food travelling through the oesophagus

Can you remember the movements you created last week when you imagined yourself to be your favourite piece of food beginning its journey through your body, beginning in your mouth?  Today you are going to create movements to represent the next part of the journey when your food moves from your mouth into your stomach via your oesophagus!  Watch the next video all the way through, and then go back to take particular attention to the Gilbert Grape's movement through the oesophagus.  Your movement sequence needs to take you from the mouth (try to make sure you enter the right tube) and will pass through the narrow tunnel of contracting and relaxing muscle to reach the esophageal sphincter where it squeezes through into the stomach (which we will concentrate on next week as we continue the journey).  So, put ALL 6 movements together (you can write down or record what you did) and we will look at how we can use movement to represent what happens in the stomach next week. Remember to be sensible when you create your sequence taking into consideration the amount of space you have to move in!


A Journey Inside Your Body

Hey guys! Wanna go on an epic journey...through the human body? Following on from your fabulous writing yesterday, watch the journey of Gilbert Grape! We want you to take particular notice of how he moves when he enters the oesophagus because that is the part of the body that we will be concentrating on for today's PE.

Oesophagus and Stomach: more information to help you create your movements....

Once the food is chewed, it needs to be taken to a place where it can further be worked upon. This is taken care of by the oesophagus and stomach. Today we are going to concentrate on the job of the oesophagus. Watch the first 2 minutes of the video and think how food travels down the oesophagus to the stomach, as you swallow, the oesophagus contracts (squeezes) to move the food. Add three movements to show the oesophagus contracting, squeezing and pushing your favourite food down in to your stomach.
